But now, not so much.
What happened to curiosity, anyway?
Curiosity and the pursuit of sunlight were once virtues, whether over presidents waging war by using misleading intelligence estimates of weapons of mass destruction or spymasters engaged in surveillance of the cellphones of Americans in violation of the Fourth Amendment.
